    FRANCE TODAY (SUNDAY) BECAME THE FIRST HOLDERS OF THE ESPIRTO SANTO TROPHY FOR THE WOMEN'S WORLD TEAM GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP IN A LAST MINUTE VICTORY OVER THE UNITED STATES, AT THE ST. GERMAIN EN LAYE COURSE, NEAR PARIS.

    THEY FINISHED WITH A 72-HOLE TOTAL OF 588 - ONE STROKE BETTER THAN THE UNITED STATES WHO LET VICTORY SLIP FROM THEIR GRASP. ENGLAND FINISHED THIRD IN THE TEAM EVENT WITH A TOTAL OF 597.

    AMERICA'S BARBARA McINTIRE, PLAYING LAST AS THE MOST EXPERIENCED MEMBER OF HER TEAM, FOUGHT OUT A GRUELLING BATTLE WITH FRANCE'S CATHERINE LACOSTE. THE 19 YEAR OLD FRENCH GIRL APPEARED TO HAVE PRESENTED MISS McINTIRE WITH AN EASY VICTORY WHEN SHE CARDED A 5 FOR THE SHORT SIXTEENTH HOLE.

    WITH TWO HOLES TO PLAY, MISS McINTIRE HAD A TWO-STROKE ADVANTAGE, BUT LET THE MATCH SLIP FROM HER GRASP. SHE BUNKERED AT THE SEVENTEENTH TO TAKE 5 FOR THE HOLE AND, AT THE EIGHTEENTH, BUNKERED AGAIN AND ENDED UP WITH A TWO OVER PAR 6 FOR THE HOLE.

    MISS LACOSTE TIED WITH AMERICA'S CAROL SORENSON IN THE UNOFFICIAL INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONSHIP, BUT LOST THE PRIZE BECAUSE MISS SORENSON HAD A BETTER SCORE OVER THE SECOND 36 HOLES.

    FRANCE WILL HOLD THE TROPHY FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS, WHEN THE NEXT TOURNAMENT IS SCHEDULED TO BE HELD IN THE AMERICAN ZONE.

    FINAL PLACINGS IN THE TEAMS EVENT WERE 1ST. FRANCE, 2ND. UNITED STATES; 3RD. ENGLAND. 4TH. CANADA; AND 5TH. AUSTRALIA.
